Gerhard Richter is one of Germanys most influential artists.

Richter creates his works by building up lots of layers. He also creates a lot of his paintings from photographs, even painting on top of them.

I love his use of colour in these paintings, really bold and vivid.

Like how Polke experiments with different media, creates really interesting unusual pieces.
